Attack of the Black Rectangles

Attack of the Black Rectangles by Amy Sarig King

This is an amazing middle-grade book about censorship and intolerance that everyone should read. Mac opens a copy of his classroom text to find that some words are blacked out. So he gets a new copy from the bookstore and realizes someone is trying to keep the class from reading the whole story, but why? When he takes his concern to his sixth-grade teacher and principal, he isn’t taken seriously. So, Mac and his friends launch a campaign to stop the censorship and show that even if it’s hard, the truth is worth fighting for. I loved this book.

    Dana, I agree 100% with your review of The Attack of the Black Rectangles. Would also recommend to read Jane Yolen’s The Devil’s Arithmetic along with it to enhance the context,
